I’ve been writing on and off for more than twenty years. I avoided writing for a long time because throughout high school I was forced to write, not for the pleasure of it, but as a way to show that I was absorbing the material that they were teaching us. It wasn’t until I was out of high school and well into my twenties before I discovered writing for the joy of putting my thoughts down on paper. I started a journal and began to write at least 100 words a day, a habit that I still maintain even today. Writing is a muscle and when it’s a well-exercised muscle, it becomes easier and easier to communicate with others. I wouldn’t say that I’m a writing expert. I still struggle some days to come up with the right word or phrase for what I’m thinking and feeling. Sometimes I put commas in the wrong place and I turn to something like Grammarly to correct me. Even with those challenges, I still force myself to write, even if it’s about nothing more than what I have to do on a given day.

In this section, you will find some of my writings. My family newsletters live here, along with most of the poetry I’ve written. There are some presentations that live here as well, and I hope at some point soon to have some songs to add to my collection.
